There are currently three contributions plans from the former Bankstown and Canterbury Councils that apply within the City of Canterbury Bankstown.
These contributions plans enable Council to levy monetary and land contributions from new development so it can provide infrastructure to support new growth.
This infrastructure includes open space, community facilities, public domain (streetscape) works, roads and transport infrastructure.
Council has prepared a new draft Local Infrastructure Contributions Plan for the City of Canterbury Bankstown. The draft plan proposes to:
- Consolidate Council’s existing three contribution plans from the former Bankstown and Canterbury Councils into a single plan,
- Implement an existing action in our Local Strategic Planning Statement Connective City 2036, and
- Introduce new contribution rates and infrastructure schedule, and amend existing provisions including exemptions, refunds, and car parking.
It will ensure provisions and rates are consistently applied across Canterbury Bankstown.
The plan allows for Council to continue to levy contributions on new development to fund new infrastructure. This is to meet the needs of our growing population up to 2036. $935 million of new local infrastructure is identified within the plan.
The plan aligns with growth targets in Connective City 2036 and Council’s Housing Strategy in providing for new infrastructure.
Council seeks comments from the community during the exhibition of the plan.
A copy of the draft plan and supporting documents are below in the document library. The supporting documents comprise existing strategic work that informed the preparation of the draft plan. A copy of existing plans to be replaced are also contained in the document library.
You are encouraged to read the draft plan to see if there are any aspects relevant to you.
